Fishing the Bisbee's Tournament with PV Sportfishing

Fishing the Bisbee's Tournament with PV Sportfishing



Classic Tournament fishing report with PV Sportfishing. 
Eastcape offshore Black and Blue Bisbee's Marlin tournament report July 27,28,29, 2011 with captain Steve Torres. Lots of fish just not to big, with over 60 boats competing this year there was only 1 marlin that qualified in all 3 days of the tournament, But that’s fishing you never know when the big Marlin is going to bite. Day 1 Great conditions blue flat seas but we were having trouble finding the bigger skippies we wanted for a big Marlin sure you can catch big Marlin with smaller bait but you will have much better luck with bigger baits. Steve Torres hooked up a nice Blue Marlin around 1pm but not quite a qualifier but still a nice fish so Freddy released her and that was about it for day 1.


We had much better luck in the morning caught 8 big skippies right off the bat and starting trolling one problem no big Marlin?? We caught a nice sailfish around 11 am We reeled her in fast and then released the Sail, and we were back on the Marlin hunt around 3pm a big Black Marlin hit a lure but did not bite very disappointing but you cant win them all seems all the other boats had the same luck as we did couple strikes nothing to big.




Day 3 Same deal great conditions and lots of big bait we caught 8 big skip jacks early in the morning found a nice school of mahi and even picked up a small Yellowfin Tuna to troll for Marlin. 1st bite of the day was a 6 or 7 ft tiger shark great that’s one bait gone to waste Pinche Tiburon!! 2nd bite of the day was a big Blue Marlin definitely a qualifier but took one leap and spit the hook and that was that. Around 1pm We had our 3rd strike of the day not a Marlin but a nice sized Mahi mahi. As soon as the crew put the baits back in the water less than 5 minutes later we had a double hook up Freddy had a small Dorado on the line and We reeled in a Striped Marlin probable around 100+ lbs We released both fish and that was the end of the day. So we basically caught everything except a Big Marlin but like i said before that's fishing. We headed back to the weigh station to see if maybe we won the daily jackpot for Dorado but came up a little short 36.3 lbs still a nice Dorado and great tournament. Overall it was a great adventure see full video below

Puerto Vallarta game fish species

The Top sought after Game fish in Puerto Vallarta are Marlin, Dorado, Sailfish, Roosterfish, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, and Cubera Snapper.



There are many Puerto Vallarta fish species to choose from when fishing in Puerto Vallarta here We will just talk about the game fish that are the most popular and most common to catch on your vacation to Puerto Vallarta. The most sought out Puerto Vallarta fish Species is Billfish. Puerto Vallarta offers 4 type of Billfish to catch Sailfish, Striped Marlin, Black Marlin, and Blue Marlin. The next biggest game fish and sought after catch in Puerto Vallarta is of course the Yellowfin Tuna. Puerto Vallarta offshore Yellowfn Tuna average 100-300 lbs up to 400 lbs. these monster Tuna feed here all year around but most months you need over night charters 80-120 miles offshore or if you are here in September and October you can find these cow fish at La Corbetena or El banco. Next on our list is the Dorado or Mahi mahi. Dorado average size is 10-30 lbs and can be caught inshore and offshore Puerto Vallarta in colder months of the year you will need to travel further offshore but normally in Summer months you can catch smaller Dorado fish inside the bay as well. Another big Favorite is Wahoo. Wahoo fish is one of the hardest to catch and is also normally only in season in September and October but if you are lucky enough to catch Wahoo it is one of the best tasting fish in the world. Grouper and Red Snapper a little bit different then the others so far for this fish species you will need to bottom fish just as fun and both fish great to eat and great fight on the reel. Other Inshore Puerto Vallarta fish species are Roosterfish, Spanish, Mackeral ,African Pompano, Jack Crevalle, Bonita, Skip Jacks. source
